    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Time Warner (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    Met with 5 or 6 managers, one after another. Most seemed very invested in the process. Asked focused and relevant questions. HR had provided me with a schedule, and we adhered to it pretty well throughout the day. Had lunch out, and that was an interview, too. So essentially there was no break in the day. But that was fine with me; the process made good use of the full day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 12+ monthsinterviewed at Time Warner.

    Interview

    It took a whole year of applying just to score an interview with this company. Finally a senior recruiter contacted me in September of 2014 to set up an interview . He was very friendly and did a 15 minute phone interview to get to know me. Fast forward now to the interview in Manhattan. I arrived at the store on time. The manager was in and they had me waiting almost an hour. The interview was very uncomfortable and weird. The manager did a small role play of me trying to sell her cable and was being difficult. She then proceeded to ask about customer service. It was the weirdest part of the interview I have ever took part in my life. I knew I should have professionally ended the interview myself right then and there and told her to get rid of my application. There was one other applicant when i left and I should have told him congratulations he probably got the job. Customer service is customer service nonetheless and this woman made me feel uncomfortable.

    Interview Questions

    • "Sell me a cable package", "What kind of customer service do you have(made zero sense at all)"   Answer Question

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Time Warner.

    Interview

    I first had a phone interview with human resources as an initial screening process. She then forwarded my resume to the director of the Media Lab. Entire process took about three weeks.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions were behavior- what type of marketing/customer service related experiences do I have. Others were more knowledge based regarding the Media Lab itself. There weren't really any curveballs.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Time Warner (New York, NY (US)) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through the TW website - process took about a month

    As far as the intern hiring process goes, it's a two step process. If you are selected, initial contact is made by an HR Rep through email to set up interview.

    First Interview: Is a 30 min phone interview. Behavioral for the most part. Walk me through your resume, leadership activities, any prior work experiences.

    Why you want to work in media? Why Time Warner? They're just trying to get a gauge of you as a person and whether you're the right fit for the company.

    Second Interview: Also a 30 min phone interview with the department hiring manager. Behavioral for the most part, but can get technical depending on experience and department you're applying for.

    So there you have it....two rounds of behavioral phone interviews 30mins a piece.

    Interview Questions

    • Just standard behavioral questions...nothing too difficult per se.

      All I will say is, know yourself and your resume. If you try to lie or fabricate something they'll see right through it. Just be yourself and if you can make your personality stand out, you should be good. Media companies look to hire fun interesting people who they can work with for 8-10 hours a day.
       
      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They offered me more than I thought I would get...so no need to negotiate.

    But its still a set salary...so take it or leave it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Time Warner in September 2013.

    Interview

    Very friendly interviews. Had first round with a manager in the group followed by several with other managers/directors followed by a lunch with what would be my peers. Mostly the interview was a description of what I've done with work/school and where my interests lie. Also touched on why Time Warner and what I can bring to the table that others might not.

    Interview Questions

    • Not much in the way of unexpected questions. Had the typical "hard to answer" one of what is your greatest weakness but had practiced what I would say in that instance and came away feeling great about it.   Answer Question
